My article for NearSay this week is a photo-guide about one of my favorite stores in Soho, The Evolution Store. The Evolution Store sells and displays natural history collectibles which are usually displayed in a museum context. To see skeletons, skulls, insects, butterflies, spider webs and all sorts of other things displayed in a store that you would only ever expect to see in a museum makes this a unique viewing and shopping experience.
Where else can you find a snake skeleton, meteorites, fossils, human skeletons, skulls, python vertebrae, taxidermy and edible bugs all under one roof? Yes, edible bugs and worm lollipops!
